Halo

I really like this song...

rain

halo_2.jpghalo.jpg

Remember those walls I built
Well, baby they're tumbling down
And they didn't even put up a fight
They didn't even make up a sound

I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I ain't never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You're the only one that I want
Think I'm addicted to your light

I swore I'd never fall again
But this don't even feel like falling
Gravity can't forget
To pull me back to the ground again

Feels like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
The risk that I'm takin'
I'm never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
Halo, halo

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

The Evil Lola

Age does not equate to respect

sunny

angry-old-lady.jpg

As I have mentioned before, I am making a conscious effort to become a better individual. Pero narealize ko na talagang madaming gagawing paraan si Lucifer para magkasala ka.

Isang magandang halimbawa ang nangyari kanina. Nagwawalis ng bakuran nila ang kapitbahay namin na si Evil Lola. Si TSA naman, sumilip sa bintana at nagkataon, nakita nya na lahat ng nawawalis ni Evil Lola na dumi, sa bakuran naming tinatapon! Syempre, sinita ni TSA.

Sabi nya “Nay, baka po puedeng wag nyo sa amin itapon yung kalat”.

Nagulat na lang si TSA nang biglang nagtatalak ang matanda. “Araw-araw ako nagwawalis dito, kinakalatan nyo”. Yung mga aso nyo, dito nagdudumi”.

“Hindi po kami nagtatapon dyan. Tignan nyo bakuran namin, may basurahan kami”, sagot ni TSA.

Tinignan ko kung ano ba yung nangyayari. Naabutan ko na nagcocomment si Evil Lola ng “Hindi dapat kayo nakikipagtalo sa matanda. Wala kayong galang”.

Hindi ko talaga napigilan ang sarili ko. Sinagot ko talaga:

“Hindi porke matanda, irerespeto. Dapat maging karesperespeto ka muna”.

Totoo naman diba? It is ironic na nahuli na nga na gumagawa ng mali, kami pa ang sinermonan ni Evil Lola. Respect is EARNED. Hindi porke mas matanda ka, puede mo nang gawin ang lahat ng gusto mo kahit nakakasagasa ka na ng kapwa mo. Iba na ang mundo. Hindi ito panahon ng Kastila na walang karapatan magsalita ang mga bata.

Nakakainis talaga. Itong Evil Lola na ito, panay pa ang church kuno. Hello! Kilabutan ka naman. Hindi sa pagsisimba nakikita ang kabutihan ng isang tao. Pala-simba ka nga, hindi mo naman isinasabuhay ang mga sermon, balewala rin. Mas mabuti pa na huwag magsimba kaysa sa nagpapakaplastik ka na relihiyoso ka. Mahiya ka naman sa Diyos.

Too cute not too share...

all seasons in one day

someone asked a 4 year old what love is and he answered:

"when someone loves you, the way they say your name is different..you just know that your name is safe in their mouth."

Of Vampires and Werewolves

overcast

Mula ng nauso ang "Twilight", lahat na lang nakikisakay sa mga bampira at werewolves. Nandyan ang Channel 2 na gumawa ng Lobo, at ngayon naman Imortal.

imortal.jpg

Natatawa lang ako kasi pati byenan ko na more than 70 years old na mega comment ng "Itong Imortal, tinagalog lang na Twilight". Oha??? Saan ka pa? Nagbabasa pa ng Twilight Series ang byenan ko. Panay nga ang tawa ni TSA.

Pero sa totoo lang, nakakasawa na. Pati nga sa States, merong True Blood at Vampire Diaries. Ganun pa rin ang theme.

Wala na bang ibang maiisip na konsepto?

Sabagay, bakit pa ba ako nagtataka? Eh yun ngang Glee, ginaya din. Nauna ang super baduy na Diva ng GMA 7 at ngayon naman Idol ng Channel 2.

Sa lahat naman talaga ng bagay, the original is always the best. At kung vampires lang din ang pag uusapan, hands down panalo ang mga vampires ni Anne Rice. Kay Lestat pa lang, siguradong patay ang Edward Cullen.

How not to spend your weekend...

sunny

Imbes na magpahinga, ginugol ko ang rest days ko sa paggawa ng project ni Chocoboy – cross-stitch. Ang ending, hindi pa rin ako gumagaling. Pabalik-balik pa rin ang lagnat ko. Sobrang sakit ng mata at inaantok. Pero, pumapasok pa rin ako sa trabaho. Mahirap ang buhay ngayon. Tsaka sayang ang incentives.

Kagabi (actually madaling araw nay un) habang nagpapahinga ng konti sa cross- stitch activity ko, napanood ko ang kalahati ng “The Ugly Truth”. Movie ito ni ultimate crush – Gerard Butler. Sayang nga lang at di ko napanood ng buo. Maganda sya, as usual. Romantic Comedy. There is something about Romantic Comedy movies that just make you feel good. Basta hindi ko ma-explain.

the-ugly-truth.jpg

Anyway, may nakita akong magandang pic ni GSP… Wala lang, gusto ko lang ishare. Ang mga bagay kasi na ganito kagaganda, hindi dapat ipagdamot.

gsp.jpg

Sayang talaga hindi ko nakita si Georges nung nagpunta sya dito sa Pinas.

Lord, please po pagalingin nyo na ako. Ginaw na ginaw na ako dito sa opisina.

I don't want to be your friend

Or anything else for that matter!

all seasons in one day

The fact that you are asking if I can have you as my friend in Facebook confirmed that it was indeed you that I saw last Saturday. I honestly do not know what reaction you are trying to get from me.

Do you think I can forget everything just like that? As I have stated before, you have broken me beyond repair. I never want to hear anything about you again. Much less, see you. You are nothing but a part of my past.

Maybe I am being mean, I am being ungrateful. But hey, I am being me. And you are one of the reasons why I turned out like this. I am sure you know that. Call me cruel and uncaring, I just don't care.

And you know what's weird? After I saw you, all I felt was hate. I really don't want anything to do with you for the rest of my life. So I hope you will take the hint.

I don't want to be your friend. I don't want to be your anything. Having you in my life is over.

Mad about UFC...

Randy Couture and Georges St. Pierre

all seasons in one day

Basta isang araw, nagising na lang ako na gusto ko ang UFC. Siguro, nahawa ako kay TSA. Lagi kasing yun ang pinapanood. kaya eto, hooked na din ako. Pero, so far, 2 lang ang gusto ko. Si Randy at Georges.

Nakakabilib si Randy kasi parang mga anak nya na mga kalaban nya sa UFC, pero kung bugbugin nya, parang wala lang. How I wish maging kasing fit ko sya pag nasa 40s na edad ko.

Si GSP naman, sabi nga ni TSA, artistahin. Pero ako ang gusto ko yung accent nya. French!


Randy Couture

Super galing talaga. Compared to other fighters, matanda na sya. In fact, in dog years, 322 years old na sya. Pero wala talagang makapantay. Living legend nga.

randy-couture-dog.jpg

Randy (The Natural) Couture is a mixed martial arts legend. He's been there since back in the the days when the only rules were "no rules," when the sport was alternately called pitfighting, cagefighting, tough guy contests and, in political circles, "human cockfighting."

2108_thumbzoom.jpg

When you struggled to find a state that would allow an MMA event to take place, Couture was a dominant force, having debuted in - and won - the UFC 13 heavyweight tournament, taking the UFC world heavyweight title two fights later.

He was stripped of that title when he couldn't come to financial terms with the UFC for a multi-fight contract, but three years later returned to the organization and reclaimed his belt from wrestling specialist Kevin (The Monster) Randleman. He's held the world title three times since, with two of those in the light heavyweight division.

He's beaten the best in the game - former champions Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz and Tim Sylvia have dropped at his hands - and he's even crossed over into mainstream media stardom, with feature films roles in Redbelt, Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior and the upcoming Carnahan. Video game players might recognize him as Commander Warren Fuller in Command & Conquer: Red alert 3.

Oh yeah... he's also 45 years old.


Georges St. Pierre

Georges "Rush" St-Pierre is a Canadian professional mixed martial artist and MMA world champion who holds black belts in both Kyokushin karate and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. At age 7, GSP decided to learn karate to defend himself against a school bully, but it was watching Royce Gracie fight in 1993 at UFC 1 that inspired him to one day become a UFC champion.

GSP_56029.jpg

Thus he began training in additional disciplines such as boxing, wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and competed in his first amateur bout at age 16. He won that match, and continued performing all the way to 2006, when he became the UFC Welterweight Champion. He lost the title in 2007 but subsequently regained it in front of his hometown fans of Montreal in 2008. St-Pierre is known for the strategic approach he uses in developing his gameplans for his opponents, drawing upon skills he learned through competing in local chess tournaments while growing up in Montreal.

gsp2.jpg

His recent accolades include Fighter of the Year 2009 by Sports Illustrated, MMAPayout.com, Inside MMA on HDNet, MMAJunkie.com, and at the Fighters Only World MMA Awards held at the Hard Rock Casino on December 30, 2009. He was also the recipient, for the second time, of Sportsnet’s Canadian Athlete of the Year, and was runner-up for the Lional Conacher Award, the first time a MMA fighter has ever been nominated for the award.

Go Gleeks!

Just when I thought things couldn’t possibly get better, Glee outdid itself with the pilot episode of Season 2.

all seasons in one day

glee2poster.jpg

There are some new faces wandering the halls of McKinley. One of those is Sunshine Corazon! This exchange student may have jumped ship for Vocal Adrenaline before she even gave New Directions a try, but she’s still number one in my heart. Played by pint-sized, Oprah-approved, YouTube-adored vocal powerhouse Filipino Charice Pempengco.

Charice_Glee.jpg

Charice plays Sunshine Corazon, a new exchange student that might give Rachel Berry a run for her money this season. During the episode, Charice performed a duet with Lea Michele on the pop hit "Telephone." If I may say so, their version was even better than the original.

Charice said the following to MTV about her new role on Glee: "It was like three months ago, and my mom and I were talking about it, and so she talked to my manager. 'Glee' is my favorite show, and so we tried. We talked to Ryan Murphy. I sang for him but I never expected that I would be a part of it. And I found out on Twitter. I was like, 'This is not true,' so after 30 minutes, I got an e-mail from them saying, 'Congratulations.'"

How I wish I can also get life changing news via Twitter…

I managed to watch the 2nd episode earlier (Britney episode). I was really touched when Rachel sang to Finn “The Only Exception”.

The Only Exception

When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it

And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I'd never sing of love
If it does not exist

But darling,
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we've got to find other ways
To make it alone
Keep a straight face

And I've always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I'm
Content with loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

Well, You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

I've got a tight grip on reality
But I can't
Let go of what's in front of me here
I know you're leaving
In the morning, when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream

Ohh

You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

And I'm on my way to believing
Oh, And I'm on my way to believing

I think I should start writing again

all seasons in one day

Life is starting to get difficult.

I don’t know why. It’s probably because I have gotten old, I have lost my emotional outlets, or probably, I’m just plain bored and somewhat unhappy with my life.

Lately I am beginning to feel like I am living for people around me – and not for me. The same old routine, day in day out is beginning to wear me out.

I either spend my days off doing the laundry or sleeping. Both of which, I swear, is unhealthy. I should start doing something for myself.

I remember I used to get manis and pedis every fortnight. I had regular facial appointments every payday. I buy shoes monthly. My collection of bags ranged from black to orange. I think the only color I didn’t have was green.  My, those were the days!

I think it’s time for me to start taking care of “ME” again.

He's Just Not That Into You (quotes from the book)

all seasons in one day

Cut your losses and don't waste your time . Why stay in some weird dating limbo when you can move on to what will surely be better territory? Don't want to hear it? Fine. Here's the answer you're looking for, "Hang in there, baby. He's not the loser everybody's telling you he is. If you wait and keep your mouth shut and call at exactly the right time and anticipate his moods and have no expectations about communication or your own sexual needs, you can have him!" But please don't be surprised if he dumps you or continues to drag you through a completely unsatisfying relationship.

He is a man made up entirely of your excuses. And the minute you stop making excuses for him, he will completely disappear from your life.

Men, for the most part, like to pursue women. We (men) like not knowing if we can catch you. We feel rewarded when we do.

Don't let the "honeys" and the "babys" fool you. His sweet nothings are exactly that. They are much easier to say than "I'm just not that into you." Remember, actions speak louder than, "There's no cell reception where I am right now."

Calling when you say you're going to call is the very first brick in the house you are building of love and trust. If he can't lay this one stupid brick down, you ain't never gonna have a house, baby. And it's cold outside.

He will always be able to play the "friend" card on you. He only has to be responsible for the expectations of a friend, rather than the the far greater expectations of a boyfriend. He's got the ultimate situation: a great friend with all the benefits of a girlfriend, whom he can see or not see whenever he wants to. He may be one of your closest friends, but I'm sorry to say ... as a boyfriend, he's just not that into you.

I don't want to be "sort of dating" someone. I don't want to be "kinda hanging out" with someone. I don't want to spend a lot of energy suppressing my feelings so I appear uninvolved. I want to be involved. I want to be sleeping with someone I know I'll see again because they've already demonstarted to me that they're trustworthy and honorable -- and into me.

Don't be flattered that he misses you. He should miss you. You're deeply missable. However, he's still the same person who just broke up with you. Remember, the only reason he can miss you is because he's choosing, every day, not to be with you.

It's very tempting when you really want to be with someone to settle for much, much less -- even a vague pathetic facsimile of less -- than you would have ever imagined. Remember always what you set out to get and please don't settle for less. These guys exist because there are a lot of women out there who allow them to.

Hey girl. Put down the penis, put your clothes back on, and go directly to your best friend's house. Do not find an excuse to stay. Do not think that because of all the crazy hotness of it all, it now means that you're meant to be together. Yes, break up sex does seem like a good idea, because hey, it's nice to have sex with someone you have these dramatic feelings about. It makes it all, well, dramatic. But now you know. It confuses everything and makes you separate sex and emotions. So now you don't ever have to make that mistake again. Got it? He's into the very-bad-idea-that-masquerades-as-a-good-idea, breakup sex. Over and out.

He's sniffing for something better, and when he doesn't find it, he gets lonely and comes "home." It's not that he's so into you. It's that he's so not into being alone. Don't give him the chance to break up with you for the fourth time. (Even the idea of it sounds beneath you, doesn't it?) Reset your breakup maximum to one and move on.

Cut him off. Let him miss you.

He doesn't need to be reminded that you're great.

There's a guy out there who's going to be really happy that you didn't get back together with your crappy ex-boyfriend.

No matter how powerful and real your feelings may be for someone, if that person cannot fully and honestly return them and therefore actively love you back, these feelings mean nothing.

Being lonely ... being alone ... for many people ... sucks. I get it, I get it, I get it. But still I have to say that yes, my belief is that being with somebody who makes you feel shitty or doesn't honor the person you are is worse.

Life is hard enough as it is without choosing someone difficult to share it with.

You deserve to be with someone who is nice to you all the time.
